Moshi for iPad

  • The upcoming 2012 Presidential Election is likely to be more closely followed on mobile devices than any other in U.S. history. Voters will be keeping up with the election on their smartphones with polls and political news, as well as on social media.

    But how, exactly, will smartphones figure into this election and, ultimately, who will smartphone owners be voting for?

    Mashable reported on a new study from ad network Mojiva, which surveyed smartphone owners 18 and up to get answers to some of those questions.

    According to Mojiva, people who use smartphones are more likely to vote for Obama on November 6. 47% of those polled said they identify themselves as Democrats, while only 28% identified themselves as Republicans.

    Either way, 82% of respondents said they are planning to vote – a very high rate compared to the actual voter turnout for the past two elections which were below 60%.

    In the lead-up to voting day, more Democrats than Republicans will be reading political news on their smartphones (63% vs. 59%), but more Republicans than Democrats will be researching the candidates (53% vs. 50%).

    Come election day, over half of respondents said that they would be using an iPhone or an Android-powered smartphone to check results throughout the day.

    But many of the respondents said they would use their phone to do even more if they could. When asked if they would use their smartphone to vote if they had the option to, 59% said they would, while a whopping 85% said they would at least consider doing so.

    What about you? Do you plan on using your smartphone to follow the elections? If so, how? Let us know in the comments section.

       With the impending US elections upon us once again it seems everyone is writing about what John McCain and Barack Obama are doing on the campaign trail.  You hear all sorts of stories about the main issues.  Well as a website devoted to everything cell phone we feel that our readers want to know what their leaders are using on the campaign trail.  Do the leaders even use cell phones?  If so which one?  Who’s their provider?  At The Insider we want to answer these questions and more.
       The big news recently, at least cell phone related, on the campaign trail recently was John McCain’s, well his aides claim actually, that he helped invent the Blackberry. The actual words were said by Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a top McCain policy adviser, waving his BlackBerry around and talking about McCain's work as a senator, telling reporters September 16, 2008, "You're looking at the miracle that John McCain helped create."
       Now although everyone knows he didn’t help create the Blackberry John McCain has been seen using both a Blackberry and a standard cell phone on the campaign trail.  What we want to know is what Blackberry does Mr. McCain use?  Is it a Bold? Is it a Curve? What about the lovely Pearl?  Before we reveal the answer we want to hear from you our readers. 

       Which Blackberry do you think John McCain uses?  We will reveal the answer on Thursday October 16, 2008.  In the meantime if you need some help check out our Blackberry page for the list of Blackberry phones.  You can find the page here
